Hey there @toks - sorry to hear about this.

From what I understand, you're referring to an account that was inactive for over a year - right?

As the best way to handle account specific inquiries is through our Official Channels, I'd suggest that you logged a ticket with our team and ask what can be done about this directly. 

Let me know the ticket ID if you like so I can find it and get on it asap. 

Thanks!

Thanks for that @toks - I've already pinged a colleague from the appropriate department and they're reviewing your case (ticket with ID: 8804763) while we speak; you should be hearing from them shortly on your existing ticket.

From my end, I've passed your comments there and raised the priority internally. Let me know if there's anything else I can help with! 

Cheers!

Hi @toks

At a guess that is probably because its not recoverable - this has previously been confirmed by Dropbox on here. A few days after the account is removed the data is deleted. This is because you are given at least three months worth of warnings that the account is going to be removed. 

Also, if you go to resign up to Dropbox with the same email and it IS recoverable you are given choice to do that. If it doesnt give you that option the account is lost.

And as I said from what you've said it sounds like the account isnt recoverable.

The support team will reply to the Zendesk ticket - account restorations go to a specific team and it can take time.
